They especially remember when a local boy heads to their most hated of rivals. That's where Dylan Moses comes in.
The Baton Rouge native and No. 1-ranked linebacker in the 2017 class took several visits to LSU before he eventually inked his papers to join Alabama last year.
Moses' choice to join the Crimson Tide likely rankled LSU fans even more as he played a big role in Alabama's stifling win over the Tigers in Tuscaloosa, which fans and analysts were quick to point out. He finished the game with two tackles and 1.5 sacks. Moses also flashed on national television at the end of the game when he burst into the LSU backfield and ripped Tigers' quarterback Myles Brennan to the ground on 4th down, effectively ending the game.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Big brother is still boss.
Alabama, the heavy favorite, didn't dominate the game as was predicted. In the end there was little suspense, though, as the Crimson Tide won 24-10.

The official Twitter account for Bryant-Denny Stadium even trolled the Tigers:

The topic of Louisiana recruits lost to LSU's greatest foe has been a hot topic in recent years, even spawning a report from a Tuscaloosa paper that labeled Lousiana 'BAMA TERRITORY.'
"No college football coach will tell you it's easy to win in Louisiana," reads the papers' front page. "It's hard to beat LSU at Tiger Stadium. It might be even harder to go into the Tigers' backyard and recruit the in-state powerhouse. But Alabama has recruited in Louisiana better than any other out-of-state school."
On the day of LSU vs. Alabama 2017, the front page of The Tuscaloosa News' sports section Saturday exclaims, "THIS IS BAMA TERRITORY."
